In the News The desktop and laptop world is dominated by x86, the mobile/embedded world by ARM. Conventional wisdom, right? Not really. There's also MIPS - hundreds of millions of embedded devices run on MIPS, and for years now, the architecture has been trying to break into the mobile world dominated so much by ARM. They just a got a boost: MIPS has been acquired by Imagination Tech, most known for its PowerVR graphics chips used in a lot of smartphones and tablets.

Intel partnered with Google to do on the fly Arm -> X86 recompilation serverside so even blob equipped apps could work (performance is another matter).
Googles insistence on isolating native code for compute only tasks made this approach possible.
